Ground Station, BIRDS Project.

My role in the BIRDS Project:
I’m working on ground station subsystem for BIRDS projects. My role is to develop ground station which use to transmit command and receive mission data from BIRDS project satellites to ensure ground station can communicate with satellites smoothly. In the BIRDS project, we will use ground station that located on ours project member country and connect all station to be a ground station network. The Ground station network can increase a time windows that mean we can have more time to download scientific and picture data from satellites. Moreover, I have been assigned to work as frequency coordination people to request frequency for ours satellites. This makes me learn more Engineering and Communication skills at the same time.
